You are doing a great job on your Mercury. I am looking at a 1961 Meteor 800 2 door maybe this weekend. Do you know if the trunk pan is the same as a 1961 Galaxie from the picture he sent me it will need it replaced. And I don't have your talent or tools to do it myself. lol He said it has a 352 FE big block with 3 speed on the floor not sure if that could be stock or not.
